Our nation has a storied history when it comes to spaceflight. From the Apollo lunar landings to the Space Shuttle missions to the International Space Station, the United States continues to be on the forefront of pushing the boundaries of where humans can go in space.
John Gould grew up near Kennedy Space Center and his first childhood memory was a Space Shuttle night launch. This ignited a passion for focusing on the history and advocacy of spaceflight, which is the foundation of LivingSpace.Earth. The website serves as a news platform where John covers new launches, space conferences, book reviews about spaceflight history, and much more.
When it comes to using a .Earth domain, John found that the domain communicates the importance of spaceflight on humanity.
“There isn’t a single person on Earth who doesn’t benefit from spaceflight,” said John. “Space is a reflection on all of humanity, and I think .Earth is a really wonderful domain to use – not just for spaceflight, but for other things. You’ve had some great guests on this podcast who are all dreamers and have such ambitious goals.”
